Burrowed within 300-acres of cloud forest reserve, Sachatamia Lodge is a bird-watchers paradise situated beside the protected forest of Mindo-Nambillo, an area renowned for its exceptional biodiversity and abundant flora and fauna.
Constructed almost entirely from wood, the lodge is a rustic building that blends in with the surrounding landscape, offering an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi. Inside, its 10 wood-clad lodge rooms and bungalows are cosy and elegantly decorated, boasting incredible views of the verdant cloud forest.
Why we like Sachatamia Lodge
Serene, peaceful and rejuvenating, the lodge offers an escape from the noise and pollution of cities and towns. Its panoramic al fresco dining terrace boasts endless views of forests that rise in to distant mountains and is an ideal spot for tasting the simply prepared locally-inspired meals.
Rise before dawn to stroll to one of the forest locations frequented by hummingbirds, attracted by fruit-feeding stations and insect hotspots, or take an afternoon hike through a natural subtropical jungle, passing pristine rivers and endemic foliage to reach a hidden river waterfall.
